Question about Washing Machines
Most newer machines do not use lint screens. Instead the lint is pumped out during the spin cycle. If there is a build up of lint then I would suspect a restriction in the pump or the inner drum drain holes.

If you are referring to the Spindle on the timer being loose ,this would suggest you may need a new timer quite an expensive repairif on the other hand its thewhole thing that is loose or the timer knob, both would be repaired quite cheaply...I wish you good luck

Most US-sold washers made after the mid 1980s don't have lint filters. The manufacturers weasel-word around it by saying that the lint "goes down the drain", leading people to optimistically assume that there is a self-cleaning filter in there somewhere. There usually isn't and whatever lint doesn't go down the drain is filtered by your cloths (but whatever does might clog your septic system). As a result of this scam, it's much harder to hang-dry or iron-dry clothes that haven't been hand washed. And, if you think spending $2000 on a pair of matched "front-load" style machines will solve this, you might be wrong; many of those washers still have no lint filter.
